As punishment for his self-aggrandising craftiness and deceitfulness, Sisyphus was forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill only for it to roll down whenever it neared the top, consigning him to an eternity of useless efforts and unending frustration. Join award-winning comedian Matt Stellingwerf ("Thor & Wendy had a baby...and it was raised by Stephen Fry & George Carlin!" - Libel) as he rolls his own boulder...searching for meaning in a life, seemingly, wasted. From his worthless PhD, to his obsession with Wikipedia. From the pointless lies he tells, to the hubris of thinking he's worth listening to in the first place.
Is there joy to be found in uselessness? Maybe...
Matt Stellingwerf is a fast rising star on the international comedy scene, and highly regarded by his peers. Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, been nominated for several others, and was nominated as Best Newcomer at the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.
Matt was a 2015 & 2016 nominee for the prestigious Billy T Award. A renowned MC and compere, Matt is a 3-time nominee for Best MC in New Zealand.
★★★★★ "Much like great sex, this brilliant hour of stand-up boasts intense foreplay and mind-blowing release" - Wee Review
